I found a few skeins of knitting wool, but it was very rough and rustic. Then I learned about felt products from Georgia. The wool is perfect for felting.
|Very warm and sturdy felt slippers.|
|Socks, also heavy and sturdy. Most socks were simply striped;|
these were more colorful.
|My new felted shawl.|
|A beautiful marble rendition of a linen drape on a tomb|
at the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta.
|Making a felted flower.|
|Felt flower pins.|
|Wall hanging with Georgian sun symbols.|
My experiences have been that fiber people, like wine people, are generous and delighted to talk about their art.
